tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News April 18, 2014 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
for lent. gwen, i gave up complaining and i'll last through easter. it's an eye-opener the little complaints everyone makes in an average day. >> that's it for us. she gave up -- lent is over and easter is sunday. >> i'm in today for shepard smith. when it comes to ukraine the diplomas say they immediate a deal but russian supporters don't see to be in on the deal. >> the south korean ferry can't whose about sank with hundreds on board. will he go to jail? one year ago police in watertown, massachusetts, helped take down the accused boston bombers. today you'll hear from the police chief about what he calls the proudest day every and this year why he will run the boston marathon. all that and a lot more ahead here on the fox news deck.
>> the deadliest day in the history of the world's highest mountain. an avalanche tearing down the slopes of mt. if vest, killing 12, four others missing. the disaster struck at 6:30 in the morning on the himalayan peaker in the border of nepal and tibet. climbing guides, sherpas, were laying ropees when it happen. the avalanche hit right below camp 2 where the climbers start their journey to the top of the world, between one and two is where the avalanche occurred. right now there are hundreds of people waiting below base camp for a shot at the summit. that might happen in two weeks. now, before today the biggest single day disaster on everest happened in may of 1996. eight pipe died after a storm strapped teams near the peak. that was in the best-selling
book "into thin air." the entire 1996 climbing season is considered the deadliest in mt. everest to date, until today. 15 people died during that spring. today's avalanche may top that with a single blow. we'll get to steve live on this with more. good afternoon to you. what are the latest numbers as we understand them now? >> right now the numbers stand at 12 confirmed dead. al of those sherpas and nepali people usedded a guides. those bodies pull from the snow and ice today, but the toll could go up as the day goes on. we have an eye witness account from a florida attorney, jeff brown. the audio isn't so good. he is calling from 20,000 feet from a base camp but gives you a flavor of this unfolding tragedy. >> i'm here at base camp. hiking.
>> you have confirmed deaths at 12 but you heard brown mention anywhere from 15 to 18 bodies. there's still several people missing so the number could go up through the day. a rescue operation i underway using helicopters and climbers on foot. >> there were hundreds waiting at base camp. is overcrowding an issue here, too many climbers. >> in the past overcrowding has been a factor. does not appear to be the case this time. the government of nepal has taken steps to manage the flow of climbers better. they put security in some base camps as well. so they've taken steps but have to balance it out with the boost to the tourist industry that depends on this two-month climbing season, which has
gotten off to a tragic start with the sherpas playing the heaviest price. >> a lot of revenue for that country. thank you for that. want to bring in now world class climber mountaineer ed bester. he helped rescue some of the stranded climbers in 1996 and you can see the video from his trek in the eye max video. he is the only american to have climbed all 14 of the world's tallest mountains and, ed, by telephone, good day to you. >> hi, how is it going. >> i'm fine. how tricky at 21,000 feet to anticipate or even prevent an avalanche? >> well, the area that the sherpa were traveling through is known as the ice fall, and it's an extremely dynamic and high-risk area, put it's a section of the climb that we have to go through many, many times during an expedition, and
the fact the ice can break and cause avalanches is completely unpredictable. you try to move through asaphia as you can. you don't want to linger. sometimes sadly you happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and that what happened today. >> the sherpas were doing advance work, right? setting lines for others when they would try to come in the first part of may. >> what the sherpa do, besides fixing the ropes they're carrying loads of equipment necessary to support all the camps above. so there's typically large groups of sherpa that go early in the morning, leave base camp loaded with food and equipment they're carrying to the next camp, and they happened to be together in this group of sherpa, 14, 15, 16 people, and again, they were at the wrong place at the wrong time, and one of these large ice blocks that is very typical in the ice falls, decided to cut loose and
buried them. >> we're dealing with this point on the planet, ed issue is something like this inevitable? >> you know, its and it isn't. when you climb everest, especially the ice falls, the risk within the ice fall is unpredictable and you can't control it. if you decide to be in the ice fall, you simply accept the fact that something could can go wrong. you don't hope it happens, you don't want it to happen, but it's part of the game, part of the risk you have to accept. otherwise you choose not to go. >> you have stood on that mountain seven times. thank you for your time today. >> thank you. >> looks like the deal to calm the crisis in ukraine could be dead after only one day. the pro-russian fighters who took over buildings across eastern ukraine says there are no way they'll give those buildings back until ukraine's western-backed government
resigns, steps down. secretary of state john kerry helped negotiate the agreement between ukraine and moscow that called for them to leave the buildings. up in of that has happened. the white house warned that russia faces more punishment if it does not stand down soon. leland is live. >> president obama's skepticism over this deal bringing an end to the crisis was very well placed. earlier today we headed out to where those pro-russian separatists have taken over the regional parliament building, and it was a, shall we say, very interesting sight. >> the men guarding this building say they're willing to give their lives rather than hand over control to the ukrainian government again, and trying to retaining the main parliament building here would be one heck of a identifying.
not -- heck of a identifying. they have armed the entrance with barbed wire, and barricades and say they're not going back until the have chance at their own republic. right now, the russian government is probably the one who we are looking to the most to see what is going to happen. in the past president vladimir putin said he reserves the right to use his military to come into eastern ukraine, and obviously there is a lot of russian troops along the eastern ukraine border there, inside of russia. the russian intelligence services are providing support, if not perhaps controlling the russian separatist movement. the ukrainian government is walk agitprop. they do not want to give into the pro-russian separatisted and give away this part of eastern ukraine. there's a lot of residents that want to remain part of the government elm the government is welling to offer concessions but they're careful not to send in ukrainian army or security services against these separatists, trying to take back
the building by force, for fear that will give russia a pretext to send those troops across the border here and into eastern ukraine. back to you. >> we'll see who makes the next move. eastern ukraine. >> april showers, get serious, folks. heavy rain in store for parts of the country, up to half a foot in some areas. we'll show you where and when. on this easter weekend coming up.

the captain of the ferry that sank off south korea is now in custody and might soon be facing charges. prosecutors today asked a court to issue arrest warrants for the captain and two other crew members. we told you yesterday the coast guard officials say the captain was one of the first people to abandon the ferry entirely. now there's word he also left an inexperienced crew member at the he. before the ferry started sinking. >> a high school vice principal in charge of hundreds of students onboard has apparently committed suicide. officials say they found his body hanging from a tree and tell us he left a note saying he felt guilty for being alive when so many of the students were missing. the ferry is now entirely underwater. divers say they finally made their way inside but they have not found any survivors. officials say murky water and strong tides are making things difficult. three ships also arrived to begin pully the ferry out of the water. that may take at least a month.
officials say 28 people confirmed dead. 270 others still listed as missing. also yesterday we noted that text messages from the missing student to their parents, hundreds of them as everything was happening in real-time, south korean media reports the messages were all fake, and that records show no student used his or her cell phone since well before the ferry started flipping. police say whoever sent those messages could face criminal charges. >> the southeast getting slammed with severe weather. going to be a rough weekend. part0s florida, georgia, andball, can expect heavy rain and potential flashflooding tomorrow. let's look at the wall. some area might get four inches of rain. parts of florida, they might get six inches of rain, and if that happens that would be more than double florida's average rainfall for the entire month of april. chief meteorologist in our extreme fox weather center.
good afternoon to you. what we tell us about the storms. >> a big disturbance moving slowly and that's why the rainfall totals are going to be extreme. you can see very heavy rain across georgia and then there's a severe side to this, some very strong winds and thunderstorm watch in effect north of fort meiers and -- meyers and daytona. probably 50 to 60 miles-per-hour winds, especially the leading band. if you're in florida, not just the rain but also the severe weather, and this is kind of that bull's eye where we'll see the severe weather today. not a big tornado threat today but a very heavy rain, the flooding with this, and the wind will cause power outages. >> thank you. have a great weekend. >> we are only days away from the boston marathon this year some of the officers who helped track down the beening suspect are marking the day in a very special way. you will hear from one of them in a moment. also, moments away from the

how different will monday be do you think? >> it's going to be incredible. it's just patriot day is a big day in boston. the marathon is a big deal and this year will be the biggest and best ever. >> you have run three times and you're doing something special on monday, too. right? >> well, we're going out to the starting line with 11 of my officers and we'll run the race along with the other 37,000 people and be at lest a million people lining the start to the finish. quite a day in boston. >> a million people. are you concerned about keeping this year safe? >> i think law enforcement has planned almost for 12 months. i've been part of those meetings. i've seen, talked to the people that are doing that. i think this will be the safest marathon. we encourage everybody to come out. last year they tried to take away our marathon. this year we're going to show them what boston is all about.
>> you have run the race three times, though. but in order -- you had to write an essay, and they accepted your essay and gave you a bid and you really did not expect that. what did you write your essay? what was your message? >> i just talked about the experience, of how proud i was of the men and women of the watertown police department to stand up to these two terrorists and defend not only watertown but the entire country. they wanted to kill more people, and it was my police officers that stopped them. i want to represent them on monday. >> there's a race in your town tomorrow, right? and the name of the race is called, unlocked, because for days people were told to stay inside, chief. >> right. last year, tomorrow will be the one-year anniversary of the lockdown, and we're going to have a 5k road race through the streets of watertown to unlock watertown and welcome everybody back and enjoy the streets of watertown again? >> how is the neighborhood now?
>> they're doing okay. i think -- plug my police department together and brought the community back together. we're a lot stronger. we to -- those terrorists tried to knock us done but we got up. we're a lot stronger for it. >> you showed america a lot, frankly. do you ever think about the tsarnaev brothers? if so, what comes to mind? >> i really don't. what i think about is jeff baumann and all the other survivors we have pep time -- spent time with. jeff will be in the race tomorrow. jeff, who owned the boat will be there. those are the people i want to be around. that's who the people of boston want to talk about. the survivors that are so strong and have come through so much. >> chief, congratulations to you. i know there's got to be a lot of anticipation. do you think about getting to tuesday, to complete the cycle, to complete the circle of recovery? >> i think so.
i think we want to get through tomorrow, the marathon on monday, and then i think the whole city will rest for a day on tuesday. we'll catch our breath. it has been a very long year for all of us. >> good luck, chief. thank you for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> we'll be there on monday. fox news uurgent. space x will engage in another supply mission to the international space station. the launch originally scheduled for monday but a healum leak forces them to scrub that. stormy weather in the area but looks like mother nature will not let that happen this time. no astronauts onboard but some 5,000 pounds of supplies including food and space suit and materials for astronauts to make some important repairs in space. a backup computer outside the
space station failed a week ago so astronauts have to conduct a space walk to replace that. phil keeting is live in our south florida newsroom. phil, no run of the mill launch today, now, is there? >> no. this put your everyday cargo trip to the space station. this launch in particular could really revolutionize the way space travel is done in the future. first, the weather, the last couple of hours, dramatically improved, just a couple of minutes ago space x did the round-rob buns. everybody saying green for go. so we're looking good for one minute from now with the dragon, the 5,000 pounds of cargo on board, if all goes with the capsule will rendevous with the space station sunday morning. first, a huge test for space x. instead of trashing the rocket into the ocean as is historically the case, space x will bring the rocket back down to the water in a slow
controlled landing, coming down vertically, feet first, as it has done repeatedly and successfully on previous tests. the idea here is to dramatically reduce the amount of millions of dollars it costs in space travel. something the team really believe will revolutionize the way space travel is conducted. >> it will. i tell you, that is -- if they can accomplish that, that's the next big step forward. here's nasa control at cape canaveral in florida. >> six, five, four, three, two, one, and liftoff of the falcon 9 rocket. and dragon. space x3 is underway. and american commercial spacecraft launching from u.s. soil makes a special delivery of new science and technology to the international space station.

particularly the germans. part of the deal i bound to be that he does not invade with his army in return for which the sanctions start to disappear. and he keeps crimea. and what price does he pay for having invaded and seizing crimea? nothing. >> that's the long game you see. >> that's right. i think in the short run he is clearly winning. the question for the long game is really up to us. do we strength nato? could be have more west european and american forces in places like poland and lithuania, estonia. do we make putin pay a price? yesterday in the press conference he was happy as a clam. >> the phrase, the new russia. i think that sends a strong install about his intentions. how do you think this administration is happening -- handling this at the moment? >> at the moment i would have to say not so well because there is
a sense throughout this that he just has not paid a price. okay. nobody wants identifying to break out -- fighting to break out. the question is the medium tomorrow, like the end of the year, next year. do we strengthen nato? get the europeans to move away from russian oil and gas and reasserting western independence from russia. we don't know the answers yet to those questions. >> we could do that if we had the conversation and if the europeans had the will. correct? >> that's right. and if we have the will. nato is partly up to us. for example, are we going to put an american troops presence on the ground in our nato allied countries. not ukraine but poland, czech, baltic states. they would like to have an american military presence. >> onemer question in the near term. how long with the new government in kiev put up with these individuals occupying these buildings in their country.

gives impetus to the house oversight committee and ways and means to continue an investigation. whether its will result in investigating by the yates depth within the obama administration that's another question. >> a great opinion at -- great point at the end. that gives people like darrell issa more fuel to continue. how and when do you see this resolving itself? >> well, you know, it looks pretty clear that lois lerner is going to refuse to testify, and some republican in the house said both ways and means and issa's committee have blown this and should have given lois lerner immunity that she can't be prosecuted for anything she tells the committee. but to give her use immunity so he has to testify about the committee, if she commits perjury, lows, she can be prosecuted for that, and ask
her, did this begin and end with you or were you getting strucks, whether from higher up in the irs, people in the treasury department, the white house, or, as we have seen, a lot of pressure from some democratic senators, like durbin and live victim and -- levin and schumer who said you need to investigate these groups. >> we polled on benghazi, do you belief the obama administration is being open and transparent? 61% say they're trying to cover something up. another poll, we asked whether or not congress should continue to investigate the administration's handle offering the attack in benghazi. 60% say yeah. those numbers clearly tell you that people believe there is still a mystery here, and that mystery needs to be solved. >> yes. it certainly tells you that. i think this as opposed to the irs is much harder to pursue. there are facts on the ground we know about that lois lerner, the
e-mail exchanges she was involved in. so she seems to be a target of opportunity for the investigators. i'm not quite sure what more can be done in this investigation. you have had mike burrell testify. people are not satisfied with his answers. you heard from hillary clinton. a lot of people not satisfied with her testimony. you can call her back but i'm not sure what different account she would give. so i'm not sure we'll ever hit pay dirt and satisfy people as to what went on in benghazi, before, during and of. not so day there aren't questions to ask can. i'm not sure we'll ever get satisfactory answers. >> enjoy the weekend. see you on sunday. >> thank you. >> fox news sunday, talking about the crisis in ukraine with russia's ambassador to the u.s. and also chris will have a special guest for easter sunday, the archbishop of washington. fox news sunday. check your tv listings for the
